A former UFC heavyweight champion could be headed to Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
On Friday, a report from Fight Bananas stated that Frank Mir has signed with the promotion. Although the news was picked up by multiple media outlets, Mir’s manager, Malki Kawa of First Round Management, indicated the reports are premature.
“He def hasnt signed yet but good work all of you for jumping the gun,” Kawa wrote.
